Dignity Health agrees to pay $37 million to settle Overbilling Claims

A three-state hospital chain based in San Francisco, Dignity Health, has agreed to pay the government $37 million to settle allegations that it overbilled Medicare and a military health care program for years.

The Justice Department said that Dignity Health, previously known as Catholic Healthcare West, submitted bills for inpatient care at 13 of its 39 hospitals in California, Nevada and Arizona that should have been charged at less costly outpatient rates.
